What Is Emsculpt®?
Emsculpt® technology sculpts your body by building muscle and burning fat by using HIFEM or, high intensity focused electromagnetic field, to induce strong involuntary muscle contractions.
Benefits of Emsculpt®
Emsculpt® is the world’s only non-invasive procedure to simultaneously build muscle and burn fat. In addition, Emsculpt® creates the world’s first non-invasive buttock toning procedure.
Ideal Candidates for Emsculpt®
Anyone can benefit from this treatment. Men and women with less than 1 inch of pinchable fat are ideal candidates and will maximally benefit from Emsculpt®. During consultation, our medical providers can determine if Emsculpt® is the right treatment option for you.
How Emsculpt® Works
The contractions produced by this technology are significantly more powerful than voluntary muscle contractions and cannot be achieved by voluntary muscle contractions that occur when we exercise. The strength of these “supramaximal” muscle contractions force muscles to undergo an adaptive deep remodeling. This results in a rapid increase in muscle mass and reduction in fat in the area being treated. One 30 minute treatment session is equivalent to 20,000 sit-ups, curls, or squats and requires no exertion. All you have to do for a new, toned and sculpted body is sit back, relax and let Emsculpt® do the work for you!
What Areas Can Emsculpt® Treat?
Emsculpt® can be used to tone and sculpt your arms, buttocks and abs.
How Many Emsculpt® Treatments Are Needed For Best Results?
